Big lie. No Yoruba person with his/her head still functioning would vote for this heartless government. I prefer he chose his running mate from the south-east. He has my vote and family already. Atiku would have majority vote in the south-west. we are all tired of buuuhaari.
Yes you can only speak for yourself and your family.

The thing is Ngozi Okonjo Iweala is more generally liked in Nigeria and also a prominent figure in the international scene. Educated people would have seen her as a step in the right direction. I mean those in the south west. If Obasanjo is willing to fully back Atiku then am sure at least 40% of the votes from the SW can be gotten. Let the south south and south east come out in their numbers to back Atiku. This has been the problem of the south south and south east. They sit at home during election day whereas in the north even the children are made to come out in their number to vote and yet we cry foul when it doesn't go our way. After following the primaries closely I am pained I didn't get a PVC

Will people in the North vote for Atiku with an Igbo Vp?
What about people in the west?
They will leave Osibanjo and vote for Obi?
There will be a block vote for buhari in SW...
Atiku has lost it.... Wrong calculation.

I see some defections from PDP to APC in coming weeks
This things were Zoned by PDP and the VP slot went to SE because SW and SS has gotten the presidency slot before.

The South West will be feeling high thinking that they are the only ones who decide the election until the Middle Belt destroys their calculation.

SE = Atiku
SS = Atiku
Half North - Atiku
MB= Atiku
Half SW - Atiku


Buhari will not sleep throughout this election period.

I don't care who Atiku chooses from the East. As long as he is from the East. The igbos would come out and vote like crazy for Atiku. When their son is on the ticket. There won't be voter apathy. Let's see how Sai Baba would return.

why won’t the west vote PDP?
Because they simply don't have a representative in the PDP!!!! Have you forgotten that only the west and the north decides who rules!!! Oga, division will never let the east come together, and even if they do, there votes wouldn't decide anything meaningful.

And you think Buhari will not also get votes from the south East?
Or you think Buhari ministers and political appointees in the south east will not also work for their boss.

Buhari has Obiano fully on his side now and it will be an interesting battle even in that Anambra state.


Atiku will lose north completely now because the northerners don't even want to have anything to do with the Igbo's.
But they want Igbos to have something to do with them..the sick mind the way Nigerians reason..selfishness and self centeredness is our bane...you want a tribe to support and respect your tribe but you cannot reciprocate that in return..how does that work.messed up situation is n't it?.

If this news is true,then Atiku has made the biggest political suicide.

He has shot himself on the foot.

Congratulations President Muhammadu Buhari in advance.


NB: I am Neither from SW nor SE..

It's funny that you think Atiku made this decision in a vacuum ... at his service are are at least a dozen astute political players (from all over Nigeria) with whom he's done the math. I'd assume their opinions are a little informed than any of us commentators (most of who cannot even win estate chairman elections)

She is from Delta while husband is from S/East.
I think PDP is trying to avoid APC arguement about NYSC. Obi is a sound choice. He did well in Anambra.

I’m beginning to think so too. All the best to them.

OBJ has succeeded in crumbling Atiku final political mission.(if you know you know)
This is a case of buying what you already have.
Atiku already has the votes from SS/SE, why picking a running mate from there even?
The West won't vote against PYO!

Very smart decision from ATIKU
If Atiku Continues with this SMARTNESS, then winning 2019 elections would'nt be a problem
Even Though Peter Obi Never achieved any thing while in power during his tenure as the Governor of Anambra, Igbos and Easterners will still vote for him because Peter Obi is From the East!!
We already know that at least 55% of people who voted buhari during the last election are regretting it already, so we can admit that the reverse will be the case come2019.



I am a Buhari suporter. Peter is the Best Governor ever produced in the Southeast
